An Igbo girl and three Igbo boys were named as best graduating students at the Dillard University, New Orleans, the U.S.A. The ceremony for 226 graduates was held at the University Auditorium and had the First Lady, Michelle Obama, in attendance.

On that evening all eyes were on 20-year-old Merrilyn Akpapuna. The Igbo Speaking, Delta-State-born bright mind has obtained the highest distinction, Summa Cum Laude, in Psychology. The topic of her research project was sexual harassment. Moreover, Akpapuna won an award for highest academic achievements for the College of Arts and Sciences and another one for College of General Studies. She plans her postgraduate study at Western Michigan University this autumn.

Michelle Obama described the graduates of the “historically-black” college as a “sea of young geniuses”, told them they had opportunities and skills that their parents and grandparents never could have imagined.
She also remembered abducted GGSS Chibok girls, who now suffer only “for wanting an education and wanting to go to school.”
